Once again, the stash has grown. I ventured north out of town last weekend.
North means Knitterly in Petaluma. It’s a really cute shop and the staff is lovely.
I stop whenever I can. I didn’t think I was having a yarn bonanza. I thought I was making one small stop.
I bought three skeins of Woolfolk Tynd. It’s amazing. It’s soooooooo soft. And, in all my time hanging around yarn shops, I’ve never used any Woolfolk. This seemed like a good excuse.
That was it. Just three skeins.
I honestly thought I was done buying yarn for the weekend.
Until. I. Remembered. This.
Really? Did I plan a trip to Mendocino without realizing it was the same weekend as the county fair which just so happens to include the California Wool Show?? Yes. Yes, I did.
As soon as I realized this, I was on my way. An hour drive out and an hour drive back, left me with two hours of county fair & yarn shopping time before I needed to be back for the wedding. You know, the reason I went north in the first place. Not the yarn. Yarn just happens. Who am I to say no?
I had time for knitting & curly fries. Not actually a great combination. Greasy fingers. Once I cleaned up, I did manage to find a little bit more yarn I liked at Sincere Sheep.
Indigo & natural dyed gradient on Cormo grown in Wyoming! And it’s not superwash! Sign me the heck up!!
Cormo is awesome. It’s a Corriedale – Merino cross. We all know the softness of Merino! Corriedale has a long staple length which brings in a sturdy, hardwearing quality. The result is a soft, springy yarn that wears wells.
That made this, entirely irresistable:
It’s a kit for the Andrea Mowry shawl, Briochealicious. It’s a crescent shaped shawl with alternating bands of brioche and garter stitch. It’s going to be mega squish heaven! The squish of the brioche compounded by the squish of the yarn! I can’t wait.
I have to though. Because there’s this.
An amazing blue & grey colorway from Nerd Girl Yarns called My Internet Friends are Real, from an internet friend, naturally. It’s even more gorgeous than it looks. I’m thinking a hat, from Woolly Wormhead, Sumner. I like the structure of it.
We’ll see…so much knitting. I need to do some finishing first! I think cat sweater #2 should be next. It’s time. I’m ready to be wearing a cat sweater. Obviously. Must. Knit. Faster!
